It is the Democrats, not the Republicans, that have the problem, but you wouldn't know it if you watched, say, The Kelly File or had your Internet perpetually wired to National Review or The Weekly Standard, where the writing is as elegant as the thinking, these days, is often fuzzy. The Democrats are fighting a real war of ideas, disreputable though those ideas may be, while the Republicans fight a status war among themselves, a battle over control, not, except in the margins, over ideology.
Am I wrong? Remind me again where Trump, at least currently, is not a conservative? Taxes, check. Deficit, check. Immigration, check. Sanctuary cities, check. Strong defense, check. Supreme Court, check. Veterans, check. Common core, check. Iran deal, check. Israel, check. Healthcare, check. Pro-life, check.... Oh, yes, Planned Parenthood. He thinks the part of that operation that treats cervical cancer is okay. What a sin.
Are they so whacky? Other nations maybe should pay the part of NATO they contracted to. And the Japanese and South Koreans themselves have been talking about building nukes. Wouldn't you after eight years of Obama? And then trade, who would doubt it could have been negotiated better, considering how our foreign policy deals have been negotiated?
And of course there's the matter of Muslim immigration. He wants that restricted for now. So do most Americans, according to polls. Again, this is the opening point of a negotiation. Who knows where it will end? But no one, other than the extreme left, would like to see the Syrian refugees pouring in. Trump will have the public on his side in preventing it.
As I said, the real problem is with the Democrats. They are the ones in true disarray and are likely to remain so through their convention.

Each and every one has uniformly failed miserably in checking the Obama Agenda.
Well, it has been known as the Stupid Party for a reason.
They realize it. The problem is they are also democrats. Their positions as infiltrators are now compromised.
The voters want a GOP that stands with them and the rule of law.
The GOP prefers to stand with illegal aliens and their employers.
That is what the struggle for the GOP boils down to.
The Dems have cr** people....and many are not happy with the last 8 years....and Hillary is simply more of the same.
I supported Ted Cruz in the primaries. I’ve been a national review subscriber for 30 years. I’m canceling that subscription. Not only has their website become nothing but Trump attacks but some of the writers are openly flirting with the idea that the Hildebeast might not be so bad.
“The voters want a GOP that stands with them and the rule of law.

This guy is right. All the GOP has to do is have ambush inspections of any company suspected of hiring illegals. Look at any roofing, construction, landscaping, and you are sure to find plenty of illegals. Put the employer in jail for a day and fine him some amount for hiring illegals and our problem with illegals will soon be over. The laws are on the books to do it now. With Trump maybe this will come to pass.
“This guy is right.”
This guy, Roger Simon, has spent the last ten months having a tantrum over the Trump ascendancy. Whatever he writes is rubbish to me.
